Q. What are the features of Bohr’s Module of an atom?

A. The features of Neil Bohr’s Module of an atom were as follows:

  • There were discrete orbits around the nucleus of the atom where electrons revolve. They don’t lose or radiate energy there.
  • The Shells were names as K, L, M, N and so on.
  • The no. of electrons in a given shell can be found by using the formula 2n2. For example, in M shell, using 2n2 thus we get 2 x 3 x 3. Now Since M is the 3rd shell. So 2 times 9 give us 18, i.e. no. of electrons.
  • In the K shell, two electrons can be accommodated. In L shell, 8 were possible. In M Shell 18 shells and N shell can have 32 electrons.

  • The Outermost shell required to have complete octet to be stable.

I’d add more questions soon. Please be patient, if you are a science lover.
